The weight lose industry is a billion dollar industry. We all know that right?
For years they have been suggesting ways to lose weight that are so wrong it makes my head spin.
I am going to make this post short and to the point...
Dieting is NOT about cutting calories. Eating a tiny piece of cake for the day is not going to work, nor is eating salads all day.
Zeroing in on what macro-nutrients your body needs does work.
Dieting is NOT about cutting out fat. Eating skim this, low-fat that, or 0 grams of a fat free processed food will not work.
Zeroing in on healthy fats, what fats to cook with and learning what fats we’ve been misled to believe that are good for us, helps you to make healthier choices. The right fats can help you keep your youthful appearance ;). Message me if you want more info on fats.
Dieting is NOT about eliminating carbohydrates. Our bodies need the glucose, the fiber, the micro-nutrients, and the energy carbohydrates provide.
Your diet should be balanced according to your body’s constitution and to your lifestyle.
Dieting is NOT about eliminating foods. Real foods are not the enemy. Trying to hand pick your foods from trial and error can be stressful (and thus raise cortisol levels).
Out of all these styles of dieting, limiting calories, in my mind, is the worst.
Because reducing calories to a level of starvation on a day by day basis will mess up your metabolic rate. A low burning metabolism leads to storing fat, and thus either plateauing with your weight, or worse, gaining more back.
If you have been on and off so called diets and have seen your weight fluctuate throughout the years, you might want to consider hiring a Nutrition Coach.
A Nutrition Coach can help you
The bonus is…
….you get human support and a "real person" accountability partner.
You’ve got a question to ask; text it to your coach.
You’ve got a hurdle to jump; your coach has your back.
Need a quick breakfast idea; reach out to your coach.
I think you get the idea.

I am a fanatic when it comes to uncovering the truths and the falsities to sound nutrition and good health. When we use a little common sense we can back up anything, yet there is always room for debate.
